Neuroscience Study Group
The Mind and Consciousness
The next meeting of the Neuroscience Study group is scheduled for Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at 2 pm in Bea Rose’s home, Apt.1909, at Vi at La Jolla Village. Visitors are welcome but please call Bea Rose at (858) 458-9263 because space is at a premium.
The discussion continues on the mystery of Consciousness. The reading suggestion is Chapter 3, “Telepathy: A Penny for Your Thoughts" in Michio Kaku’s book, The Future of the Mind.
Additionally on the roster are two books about Octopuses and Consciousness that will be discussed:
1. Other Minds: 'The Octopus and the Deep Origins of Consciousness, by Peter Godfrey-Smith, and 2. The Soul of an Octopus, A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness, by Sy Montgomery. These books approach their subject from diametrically different perspectives. Please read chapter 2 of each of these books.
